Registered members are able to send each other private messages (PMs) – these allow members to communicate privately with others. The Private Messaging facility is not to be used for the sending of spam messages, or messages that are abusive, pornographic, insulting, of a prejudicial nature, or that doesn’t adhere to the supportive ethos of Wikivorce.
The correct procedure for reporting unwanted PM is to forward the message to either the TeamWiki account, or the Community Manager (currently rubytuesday), and the matter dealt with accordingly.
